Opponents to the downtown convention hotel in Kansas City say the issue is growing.
“It has become a full-fledged attempt to dismantle the petition process and disregard or destroy the city charter,” wrote Dan Coffey of the Citizens for Responsible Government in a letter to supprters..
Coffey’s group got a letter late last week telling them the city would not place the hotel issue on the ballot. The city says it has been warned it could be violating agreements and pledges it has made if the hotel is delayed much longer.
The statement said it was sending the letter of rejection on to members of the City Council.
“We are sending a copy of the letter to city council members as it appears they were not included in the mailing,” it says
